Haven't I read this book before? Or at least seen the movie? I'm pretty sure I have. Jenna was in a terrible accident; she was in a coma for two years and lost her memory. Now, she's awake and alive, but something's not right. As her memories start coming back, Jenna realizes that she has just as many questions as she did when she first woke up. Why doesn't her grandmother seem to like her? How come her mother moved them to California while her father stayed in Boston? And why does she feel...just...different?

I figured out the answers to most of the questions pretty early on. And while The Adoration of Jenna Fox does have a twist that I didn't forsee, the ending of the book was predictably dystopian and disappointing. Pearson begins to grapple with questions of what it means to be human and our relationship with technology, but in the end, she takes the easy way out, to the detriment of her story.
